Ashley couldn't care less about the prom - but when disaster strikes and she finds herself drawn in to organising it, she discovers a little about getting things done and as well as rather a lot about herself. Everyone's excited about the prom except Ashley, who couldn't care less. She's too busy worrying about her crazy family and TJ, her flaky boyfriend, who wants them to move in together after graduation but just doesn't seem to around when she needs him. But when disaster strikes the prom committee, somehow Ashley gets roped into helping save the evening. And she finds herself learning quite a lot about organising a prom - as well as learning little more about herself.

"- 'Nails the high school experience cold. An uncannily funny book even as it plumbs the darkness, Speak will hold readers from first word to last.' (Speak) - THE HORN BOOK - 'The plot is gripping and the characters are powerfully drawn, but it is its raw and unvarnished look at the dynamics of the high school experience that makes this a novel that will be hard for readers to forget.' (Speak) - KIRKUS REVIEWS - 'Anderson has produced an outstanding book which invites the reader's admiration and empathy... The power of Speak to evoke a positive response in spite of harrowing realism lies in Anderson's poetic prose and witty first person narration.' (Speak) - BfK - 'A stunning first novel... Anderson infuses the narrative with a wit that sustains the heroine through her pain and holds readers' empathy. The book's overall gritty realism and Melinda's hard-won metamorphosis will leave readers touched and inspired.' (Speak) - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY"
